Twelve people have walked on the moon. Only one has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers.
Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), is aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, who overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan. Robert Zemeckis, the master director of such marvels as Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Back to the Future, Polar Express and Flight, again uses cutting edge technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story. With innovative photorealistic techniques and IMAX® 3D wizardry, The Walk is genuine big-screen cinema, a chance for moviegoers to viscerally experience the feeling of reaching the clouds.
The screening is Monday so if you are interested, please comment below with your best NYC story. I’ll start with mine: I’ve been to New York City over a dozen times, but this past trip was the most memorable. My daughter was turning nine and all she wanted for her birthday was to see the Big Apple. And so we did!

Visited NYC numerous times, and actually lived there for 6 months. Such an experience!
I’ve been to NYC several times shopping and/site seeing. But this last visit was crazy, my best friend talked me into driving to Columbus, Ohio to help her with a NYC bus trip she does every year. I drive 3hrs to aboard rhus bus only to have rhe bus drive close to Pittsburgh. I was pissed. Same way leaving NYC. Watched Pittsburgh in the rear window to drive all the way to Columbus only to get in my car to drive back to Pittsburgh. Pissed, I tell you!
My girlfriend went to NY without me and brought me back shot glasses #turntup
I once woke up in a bar in Manhattan once morning. The night before I randomly ran into these nice people who were like, “Hey, come out with us to this bar!”, and we went back to this bar that belonged to somebody’s uncle and the bar was closing down for good, so all of the alcohol had to go, so free drinks all night since the bar was no longer in business, and I got to crash there. Lots of people can say they’ve passed out in a bar, but I’m the only one I know that’s actually woken up in one the next day.
One time a friend and I were walking down a street in NYC and a large black SUV with tinted windows was driving along next to us, with cars following it, filming the SUV. At the stoplight, we yelled “Who are you?!” to the driver. The window rolled down, and it was Missy Elliot filming a video. She said hi, the light changed green, and they left and continued to film the video.
New York is an exciting city. I would like to see it from above through someone else’s eyes. Iris
Walking above New York is certainly easier than driving through the city as an out of Townes. Ed
Love the shopping in NYC!!!! Best place to do it!!!
I wish I had a better NYC story. I saw the Statue of Liberty at a great distance on a bus trip. Looking forward to my first trip to the city.
Bus trip around Christmas with my mom!
My best NYC story was spending my 10th bday in new York during the Xmas holiday it was amazing living it up home alone 2 style. Family food and fun the 3 needed things to take a bite out the big apple

I lived in NY for a couple of years when I was in the Army. My favorite memory was going to see the Rockettes.
Everytime I go to NYC – I go to Time Square to “peoplewatch”. It is facinating!
